Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
While the VISTA sidebar can be a helpful tool in the home environment, in the business world it is often viewed as a resource hog which needs to be removed.
In order to keep the sidebar from starting on a computer in VISTA, click on the start menu and open a ren dialog. Type gpedit.msc and hit enter. This will bring up the local GPO snap in. Under the heading Local Computer Policy, expand the section labeled Administrative Templates and then expand Windows Components. In this section you will find a folder named Windows Sidebar. In the Right hand window, double click on the option labeled Turn Off Windows Sidebar and check Enable. Click OK and restart your computer. That's it! Now everyone who logs into that computer will have the sidebar turned off by default.
